Storm Chaser

TIV-2 is basically a storm chaser vehicle that the Discovery Channel featured in its new TV-series. Unlike its predecessor, it “has sides fitted with hydraulic skirts that can be dropped down to direct high-speed wind safely around the truck.” Video after the break.

Whether the skirts are down or up, this sucker’s imposing thanks to a chassis based on the 2008 Dodge 2500 4×4 with a 1/8th inch welded steel plate body over a steel frame.
